I think we need an intervention

Me: you'll get your truck back tomorrow if you stop swearing
Matthew: if you give me back my truck TODAY I'll stop fucking swearing, I promise!
long pause
Matt: (sweet voice) Mommy...
Me: (equally sweet voice waiting for the I-can't-resist-that-face apology) Yes, Matt...
Matt: Can you kill someone with a highlighter?

I'm going to hope that the question came from my telling him that highlighters were dangerous markers and not because he was planning some kind of highlighter hostage thingy at school... ONE STEP AND SHE GETS NEON YELLOW ALL OVER HER JUICY SWEATSHIRT THAT SHE SHOULDN'T EVEN OWN IN THE FIRST PLACE BUT ESPECIALLY NOT WEAR TO SCHOOL!

It's the second kid that usually teaches the first one to swear. I'm giving you 5 years before you have to deal with this. You have a way to go! Unless of course my kid spends time with yours. Just giving you the heads up. Oh and the swearing is all from the father's side of the family.... Ooh, never mind.
